Q: no buttons?

I installed Firefox on this customer's laptop, and when it's open and running, there is no button on the taskbar to show the open window. I've never heard of this, but I think it's a windows thing, not a firefox thing...

anyone know how to make it normal?
Thanks

Preferred Solution: no buttons?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

If anyone has acces to the connections/schematics for the M4600 touchpad/button assembly, I'd love to see them! For some reason both the right buttons have stopped working. Tried to disconnect/reconnect  the 14 pin "touchpad cable from the mainboard, but unfortunately this did not do the trick. Need to look a bit deeper - so would love to see the schematics or at least the pinout of the connector(s)... (It's a button - how hard can it be to fix... ;-)
Thanks and best regards,

Several times now, when I start my computer, everything seems normal. But when I try and click on the start button, a quick launch button or a task bar button - NOTHING HAPPENS. I just get a ping sound from my speakers.
Sometimes a restart fixes the problem and sometimes I have to turn the computer off and then on again to get it to work correctly.

Does anyone know what could be wrong and what I can do to fix it.

Thanks

Hi aca85, you want to activate 3d flip without touching the keyboard ? yes, it is possible . Dunno why anybody else suggested this to you till then .

1. Right click on desktop > new > shortcut
2. In the new shortcut box, type
%windir%\system32\rundll32.exe DwmApi #105 ( copy and paste)
3. Click next, then click finish.
Double click on it and see what happens

Wanna change the icon like that in vista?
1. Right click on the new shortcut ( shown as rundll32) > properties> change icon
2. In the look ofr icon ... box, write %systemroot%\explorer.exe and hit enter
3. Select the fifth icon in third row. Ok ,apply ,ok.

Place in taskbar? Just right click > pin to taaskbar.

If this is what you want Then you should have replied wihhin this time, I think I am describing another process. It's so common

hello. i was wondering if there is a way to make this windows button into a gif instead. meaning..you know those buttons right? the grey boring ones that say "submit" or whatever.

i have been able to customise one with css to try and match my site. but i still dont like it. main the text doesnt match.

so i'm wondering if there is a way i can make it so i dont have to use a button, and i can use a gif instead.

heres the code i have right now that i'm using.

<INPUT type=submit name=btnG VALUE="Google Search" style="font-family:verdana; font-size:13; color:81a3dc; background-color:274d8a; border: solid 1px #000000; cursor:hand;">

its the little google thingey they allow you to add to your site.

i have managed to customise it to look like this.

http://www.fortunecity.com/athena/power/519/

or

http://nav.to/tact1

it doesnt show much something odd with host but you can kinda see what i did.

i replaced the yukey old google gif with one of my own and tried to do the same with the button that says "google search" however i can't so i tried editing with css but it just doesnt match like i'd like it to. so i'm just wondering if theres a way i can just use a simple img src code and put in a gif or jpb and it would still work like a butt...

A:buttons

ok, a few things:
1. yes you can do this by using: input name="Submit" type="image" src="yourGifLocationHere"

2. This only works with single buttons. If you wanted to have both a submit button and a clear button you would have to use JS to get both to work.

3. It must be in a form tag to work. But it should already be in a form tag.

Hello everybody,

I have joined the forum recently. I have a problem with IE 6 which started just a few days ago. When I open multiple windows I can see only four buttons in the task bar. If I open the fifth window I do not see it in the task bar. Earlier I used to see an arrow at the end of buttons by clicking which I could see the other buttons. I do not see that now.

I have been using a Mac keyboard on my win 7 desktop for about 6 months (I love the spacing on the keys). Anyway about a month ago the f1 and f2 buttons just flat out stopped being recognised. I mean they don't even register if I use a keyboard diagnostic tool and strike the keys. Every other key works fine. Here is where it gets odd. If I press a key (any key) and then press f1 or f2, they suddenly register as being pressed...so they do work, just only just as long as I'm holding another key down at the same time. I have a plugged it into an older xp machine and it works fine straight away, I have plugged it into a macbook pro and it works perfect too, so it is not the keyboard itself. I have an older G4 apple keyboard from times gone past in a drawer that works fine if I plug it into the win 7 machine so it is not general key mapping on the win 7 machine. The only problem is when I put this specific keyboard with this specific machine. I have done every combination of plugging / unplugging, uninstalling / installing drivers, starting and restarting in normal and safe mode to no avail. I'm thinking that the problem may be deeper in windows than I'm comfortable playing without guidance, possibly a software conflict somewhere.

I did play with some services in admin tools a few weeks back due to 15 min boot times on this machine and it may have started then (I'm not sure...how often do you press f1 / f2?). Either way it is a useless shortcut if I need to press 2 buttons to g... Read more

Hello. There are a couple of things one can do to try to solve an audio problem when one does not know what is causing the problem. The first thing is to reinstall the audio driver:
1. Open the Device Manager2. Expand the Sound, Video & Game Controllers section.3. Right click on the audio driver and select to uninstall.4. Do not put a check mark in the option to delete the driver software.5. Restart the laptop and Windows will reinstall the driver, but with the settings back to their defaults.
Another thing is to use Windows System Restore if you have a Windows operating system. Find a Restore Point dated from before the cat walked on the laptop. Windows System Restore will fix certain system changes.
A third thing you can do is reset the laptop back to the original factory configuration.
If you need more help, include the full model name of your laptop and which operating system it has. Without knowing those things you can only get generic advice.

however... after witnessing this myself... everytime '/' was pressed... it either turned num lock on or off... so while typing in the address (e.g. www.bbc.co.uk/entertainment) it started fine and became jibberish after the '/'

strangely enough... the normal num lock works ok... a laptop with 2 num lock buttons...

Hi everyone,
Sorry to disturb with a petty and stupid problem like this one. Don't know how exactly I managed to do it , but my the buttons for running applications are gone from my taskbar. Can only switch between programs via ALT+TAB, which is not always convenient.
I have start button, quick launch tab, language tab and notification tray in my taskbar all working properly, but the actual buttons for running programs are not displayed. Also the dividing border is missing between the quick launch tab and the area where the buttons for running applications normaly appear (little 'engraved' dots line in Windows XP theme). And the taskbar itself looks like there is another one under it (two edges on top). However, draging it around the screen does not help.
Could you please suggest how to restore the default appearance of the taskbar.

I would like to reconfigure the forward and backward buttons ( |<< and >>| ) to go to the next song in my winamp player. As it is now, it works with windows media player. Is there any way I can change it or something I can download that will allow me to reconfigure the buttons?

A:Media Buttons

I guess if you change the Default Player to Winamp this should take care of the issue however check in control panel keyboard properties if you have buttons tab where you can define shortcuts to keys

You'll see, my buttons in that kind of windows looks weird... Though I have Windows XP-theme on and style is Window XP, some buttons look like from ordinary windows.... That happened when I did some stuff with StyleXP. And those flyleafs in the setup of graphic-card are like that.

I hope, you can help me...

A:Win XP buttons, looking weird?

If you made the changes with style XP you probably have to reverse them with it.
I am not to clear on what the problem is. Do you mean things are out of focus a bit?
